Thanks for the info. [QUOTE=UberMensch;20364865]For colocation, I wouldn't go with RapidSwitch unless you have serious money to burn. While they're a very good and very professional host, there's a few hidden costs which they don't exactly tell you about when you sign up. Have a look at killercreation.co.uk. The guy who runs that - Justin - is possibly the nicest person you could ever meet. They also do standard dedicated servers which are a little more expensive than RapidSwitch, but the attitude of the company outweighs that imo. Where RapidSwitch are extremely professional, KillerCreation are much more down to earth and friendly.[/QUOTE] Ok, thanks, Do you know how Killer Creation's normal game servers are though. And Im guessing if I just ask them they can get a Gmod server since its not on their list of games?

I've been using KillerCreation for around 3 years now, they're consistently on the ball with their business and I've never had any trouble or problems with them or the services they provide. For as long as KC keep up their astronomically good service, I'm going to be recommending them to anyone who will listen.
Congestion – Server congestion is much less of an issue with a dedicated server, especially when compared to shared hosting options. With the latter, you often run the risk of congestion due to the traffic and usage levels of other websites or applications hosted on the same server, competing for bandwidth, disk space and CPU usage. The very nature of dedicated hosting ensures that this isn’t an issue. It also works the other way; if the website in question is resource heavy then dedicated hosting may be the answer to ensure that other websites aren’t disrupted.

Indeed you don't - because renting one dedicated server box that you can run two full 80-man Squad servers on doesn't cost that amount of money; more like +/- $150, the exact amount depending on who you go with / what sort of rig you want to rent. If you only want to run one 80-man server, for example, you can go for a cheaper package and get one for around $100.
One of the reasons for choosing to outsource dedicated servers is the availability of high powered networks from multiple providers. As dedicated server providers utilize massive amounts of bandwidth, they are able to secure lower volume based pricing to include a multi-provider blend of bandwidth. To achieve the same type of network without a multi-provider blend of bandwidth, a large investment in core routers, long term contracts, and expensive monthly bills would need to be in place. The expenses needed to develop a network without a multi-provider blend of bandwidth does not make sense economically for hosting providers.
The configurations of our hosting servers are designed to bring solutions tailored to professionals. Depending on your activities, you may require a configuration with more RAM, more storage space or increased processing capabilities. What's more, the OVH dedicated server series differ from one another by their bandwidth capacity and range of related services. You can also get anti-DDoS protection adapted for online gaming, the vRack private network with up to 10 Gbit/s bandwidth to connect your dedicated server to your infrastructure, and hard RAID. Choose the dedicated server that fits your needs.

You'll also want to consider how long you'll need dedicated web hosting. If it's a short-term project—say, less than a month or two—you'll typically receive a refund should you cancel your hosting within 60 days. Some companies offer 30-day money-back guarantees, while others offer 90-day money-back guarantees. Once again, it's beneficial to do your homework.
Launching a business-focused website is not a simple task, as you must build your online destination with commerce, search engine optimization, security, and other factors in mind. For a rock-solid website foundation that can withstand high traffic volumes and let you install your own scripts, however, a dedicated server is an easy choice—if you can afford one.
Cloud servers can be configured to provide levels of performance, security and control similar to those of a dedicated server. But instead of being hosted on physical hardware that’s solely used by you, they reside in a shared “virtualized” environment that’s managed by your cloud hosting provider. You benefit from the economies of scale of sharing hardware with other customers. And, you only pay for the exact amount of server space used. Cloud servers also allow you to scale resources up or down, depending on demand, so that you're not paying for idle infrastructure costs when demand is low.

A dedicated server can be used for a variety of purposes: big data, machine learning, website and application hosting, backup and storage, infrastructure virtualization, server cluster, business applications (CRM, ERP) or online game hosting. This is why we offer several dedicated server series, each designed for specific needs. Our sales and technical teams can help you with your project and give you advice on choosing the right server.

You should not have any congestion on a dedicated server, since you are on a dedicated server. With shared hosting, you may have other websites taking up bandwidth on the server and even crashing it if something suddenly goes viral on their website. With your hosting provider and a dedicated server, the only congestion should be felt is if you have gone viral.
Dedicated hosting is a hosting configuration in which a server is devoted to a single organisation or for a single purpose, such as a website. This is in contrast to shared hosting, in which a server acts as a host to multiple clients. A dedicated hosting service is sometimes referred to as a dedicated server and can be set up in-house or externally as a service from within a data center. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits.

FREE in WHM, AutoSSL is cPanel’s answer to the annoying problem of SSL renewals and installation. Some Certificate Authorities utilize short expiration dates on their certs (for security purposes it’s better to limit exposure if your key is compromised) requiring admins to frequently renew their certs manually to avoid a coverage lapse. You can use this tool to issue Domain Validated SSLs through Comodo at no additional charge. If you prefer a different type of SSL you can purchase a 3rd party SSL and install it directly or use our Launch Assist service and allow our System Admins to install it for you. Server Name Indication (SNI) is enabled by default to allow a single IP to support multiple SSLs.
I have been in / been part of the beginning of several communities in this game, and am currently part of the staff for a UK clan, and one of the few with direct access to our box. I have been part of this game's community for the past few years. I know others who have been hosting their own servers for the game since it was possible to do so. And to call me out here as "not being so smart" with all the flat-out idiotic crap you're posting, here? Hilarious.

Lastly, what kind of support does the hosting provider give to the customer? Customer support should be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, especially if you are running an online business or a game that supports multiple users. You will want a hosting provider that makes it easy to get in touch should something go wrong or you want to upgrade before something does go wrong.
The cloud offers elasticity and flexibility to meet a range of demands for Big Data initiatives. Not all infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) providers are the same, though, and your organization requires performance and speed advantages to make Big Data initiatives successful. Recently, Principled Technologies ran a Hadoop-based Big Data workload and a series of networking tests on two … Continue Reading...
Dedicated servers need security options so that you can protect your website against hackers, viruses, and breakage. Firewall configurations are important but time-consuming. Some hosting providers will provide extra built-in security features, so you do not have to worry about it and get started with your server without any security to install except for additional options that you may want.

A cursory glance at the many web hosting services we've listed here reveals many similar-looking offerings, but the discerning eye will identify some subtle differences. You'll want a dedicated server with significant amounts of disk space—preferably 1TB or more—for storing files. You can typically choose either a traditional hard drive or a solid-state drive as your website's storage medium. There's a trade-off, however. Solid-state drives are often faster and more reliable than HDDs, but they cost more money and have smaller storage capacities. Traditional hard drives, on the other hand, have large capacities and lower prices but aren't quite as resilient as their SSD counterparts. Unless you truly need blazingly fast storage, a traditional hard drive will get the job done.


Once you are ready to go ... remove the password, start up the game, strip your character down to their tight whities (placing everything into a crate), turn the monitor off, and wank away. Note that your host character will die shortly thereafter but the game will run on and external players can come and go as they please (assuming you/they don't have any connection issues).
What does this have to do with server hosts running too many instances on a box, getting shit performance, then blaming it on a host of unrelated crap, including blaming OWI? Cus, you know, that has happened plenty of times so far. Which is what the various hosters in this wider community have been discussing amongst each other for the past few years.
It is very rare for a customer to exceed normal usage while managing a website. Typically, customers only experience issues if they use their accounts for storage (for example large multimedia files) or file sharing. Our hosting services are not intended to support these activities, and in accordance with our Terms of Service your disk space and bandwidth usage must be integrated into the normal operation of a website. We offer various plans that better address high bandwidth and large storage requirements. Please contact us for details.

How about several years' worth of stress tests across various sets of hardware performed by the devs of the game, the QA team, as well as the plethora of server owners / hosts, that have all provided empirical data that reflects expected results of software that is not yet fully optimised, running a large-scale game that's replicating as much as Squad is.
To date, no industry standards have been set to clearly define the management role of dedicated server providers. What this means is that each provider will use industry standard terms, but each provider will define them differently. For some dedicated server providers, fully managed is defined as having a web based control panel while other providers define it as having dedicated system engineers readily available to handle all server and network related functions of the dedicated server provider.
